The company was incorporated in the UK in 2011 and has developed a non intrusive, remote pipeline integrity inspection technique known as Stress Concentration Tomography (SCT) targeting the inspection of difficult to inspect and unpiggable pipelines. It is recommended specifically in the ISO22974 - 23 Pipeline Integrity Management standard when assessing the effect of ground movement on the integrity of pipelines laid in geohazardous regions. Capable of detecting to sub metre accuracy the location of every kind of defect that cause a localised increase in stress and with a POD of greater than 80% the technique has been deployed worldwide with several pipeline operator majors becoming repeat customers. SCT can also report a 3 dimensional view of the pipeline route, which includes depth of cover, and in addition when required the location of girth welds, changes in wall thickness and diameters. A recent advance is the capability to report % bending strain with proven accuracy. Evolving from this is a rapid screening tool the Company has developed to detect corrosion under insulation (CUI) without the need to remove the coating which leads to a significant plant maintenance cost reduction
